Had to dig a bit to find what I think is the original source (often a pain in the backside to do with public domain licensed photos) but I think I got it...

I see 100% no reason to think this is not the correct ID.

'Dorsett Golden' fruit have a 30 percent light-red blush that covers a yellow ground color.
It's an unusual coloring, This is probably due to the lack of sunlight,
comes from Nassau and is intended for the cultivation in Central and North Florida

for comparison GPS

Brogdale UK 51.300946, 0.875816 pictures of green apples
Orlando 28.549002, -81.381190 the optimal area for cultivation
for comparison
Calgary, AB, Canada 51.049391, -114.097501 cca the same latitude as Brogdale

' Dorsett Golden ' is not intended for England Hilarious!
